The evening of Dec 28 was slighty to mostly cloudy. Unsuitable for visual observing. A good night for doubles. 

 

61 Cygni is the famous Piazzi's Flying Star, two dwarf orange stars. A lovely double. The info in this pic is taken from SkySafari, except for a and E components, that's how they are labeled in SkyTools 3.

The Stelladoppie listing is confusing, as there is no 'a' component. Also the measurements HZE 4 and TNN 15 give a primary magnitude of of 2.xx, which I believe is in infrared. Be careful to read the fine print.
